And every time I've opened my computer lately, the first thing I'm seeing is Ring of Fire, so that's what I've been working on, which has put me behind on everything else, but I am liking the shape it's taking. I decided that, after all these years, I'm going to put the sub plot back into the story where it belongs, cut severely, and then chop it in half rather than try to aim for forcing through a 300,000-word novel. Right now "Part One" is at about 80,000 words, and may get a little bigger, but not much; the rest will make up "Part Two." I'm ending Part One right after Sean Patrick lets Della go and the vampire hunters have dispatched Erlind, making for a reasonably good climax and lead-in into Part Two.

An all-round goodie, you're noble at heart and strict about following morals. Your intellect surpasses the common pony; you have a great eagerness to learn more and fill your mind with knowledge.

This morning, some ANIMAL got up on the stove and somehow managed to knock off my brand-new large cast-iron skillet, breaking off the stability handle (which concerns me) and CRACKING A TILE.

The skillet is still usable, but without the extra handle, it's a little on the large-and-heavy side to lift, especially when it's full of something.
typographer has gotten me hooked on Lambic, a Belgium beer which does not taste like beer at all, but rather more like a fruit wine. I've tried the raspberry and the apple, both delicious. There are blueberry, peach, and cherry, as well; I will be trying the cherry for sure. Nom.
